Nintendo Download: April 25, 2013 – Rayman, Mega Man, & More!

With many expecting the Wii U system update to launch today, along with the Virtual Console on Wii U tomorrow, we still get a new batch of downloadable games on Thursday. Are you ready for this week’s Nintendo Download?

First up is the long-awaited online challenge mode for Rayman Legends. This app is essentially what Ubisoft is giving Wii U owners (for free) to satisfy them after the delay of the full game. Be sure to pick it up, and you might want to let Ubisoft you appreciate the gesture, no matter how you might feel about the full game’s delay. Maybe next time, they will learn not to mess with Nintendo owners.

On the 3DS eShop, we get a little bit of everything. First is Mega Man 4, which means we are over halfway through the Mega Man games that were said to launch on the 3DS. Also available on the eShop are Crazy Construction and Color Commando.

Finally, we get another Wii Virtual Console game. This time, it is Sengoku. If you are a fan of side-scrolling, arcade-style fighters, you may want to download this one. In fact, it might be one of the last Virtual Console titles released for Wii. This is not official confirmation, but it can be assumed, since the Wii U VC is launching soon.

We have posted the full list of all the releases and prices below (apologies for the lack of prices, as Nintendo did not supply them this week), along with the official press release, straight from Nintendo of America. Be sure to let us know what game(s) or apps get you excited to play. Let us know in the comments below or in our forums!
